Yellow Brick Roadblock

Yellow Brick Roadblock, 2013


Artist paves entire New York City street block with yellow bricks. Using yellow caution tape she blocks off access from chosen block and posts a counterfeit construction sign on the site. Entire block takes her 6 hours to completely cover, only interrupted by a dog walker (who complained that the bricks smelled of toxic spray paint), a cop (who asked her to stop, she pretended to put stuff away to humor him but that's it), and a couple of acquaintances (that shrugged).
